Thank you for contacting The Mark Boyland Team for help with your real estate needs. I want to provide you with my background and expertise, so you will be confident in your choice of Realtors. I think you’ll find that I have the experience and knowledge you are looking for. My goal is to assist you in making the best decision for you. I am proud to be known for my values of hard work, honesty and responsibility. Every year for the last 10 years I have ranked in the top 1% of REALTORS® in the Westchester Multiple Listing System (MLS). In 2010 I ranked in the top 10 out of over 7,000 agents in our MLS for closed sales. I have been serving the area as a professional REALTOR® since 1995. In addition to being a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI) I am also a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). I now help many of my clients who are in financial trouble avoid foreclosure. In 2010 I became a national instructor for the Distressed Property Institute to teach the CDPE course. I now travel around the country training Realtors® to help their clients avoid foreclosure and work through the short sale process to a successful completion. Locally and nationally, my involvement in the real estate industry is as follows: • President of the Westchester – Putnam Multiple Listing Service (2007-2009) • Associate Broker and Partner at Keller Williams NY Realty • Director for the National Association of Realtors® (2007-2009) • Director of the New York State Association of Realtors® (2007-2010) • National Speaker & Instructor - Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) course • Founder of www.DontForecloseSellInstead.com • Past-President of the Bedford Village Lions Club I've been featured in the New York Times, The New York Post, Westchester Magazine, Bloomberg Television, Reuters TV, WCBS News Radio 880, and News Channel 12. Most recently I was interviewed for the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelly and The Osgood File. By dedicating my time to local and national associations I stay abreast of the real estate market and trends so I can advise you to make the best real estate decisions. The business of real estate is a natural fit for me since I was raised within it. My grandfather owned a real estate firm in the Bronx, my father was a VP with the corporate real estate division of Citibank, and my mother was a top agent in the county for almost three decades. I offer a comprehensive understanding of the business, along with an in-depth knowledge of the local area and market conditions that benefits my clients. I have proven the value of a team approach to buying and selling real estate, employing a 8-person team composed of: a Listing Coordinator, a Closing Manager, two Short Sale Coordinators, and four Buyer Specialists. I have also embraced technological marketing innovations, such as social media, search engine optimization, and web video. My listings are accessible from over 1,000 different real estate websites. Thank you for allowing me to share my experience with you. It is important for you to know who you are working with in today’s real estate market.
